We envision more social justice and a world where people with diverse abilities can live, learn, work and play in inclusive communities. The unique value of each person is revealed and honoured, individual aspirations are supported, and barriers to opportunity are removed.
The Essence of Life is a philosophy that the Integra family has adopted. It helps us think about life for people with diverse abilities in the same way we think about life for ourselves. It’s about understanding that families, friends, and personal networks are the foundation of a rich and valued life in the community. We believe that communities are enriched by inclusion and a good life requires opportunities for valued relationships, choices, and opportunities to contribute.
Our mission is to serve as advocates for persons with diverse abilities, their families and other community members and empower them with the knowledge and opportunity to make informed choices and exercise control over their lives. We are here to create positive social change so everyone is valued and respected interdependent members of society.
Integra Support Services is an accredited agency. Every 3 years our services are evaluated by CARF - an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services. CARF accreditation provides a visible symbol that assures the public of a provider's commitment to continually enhance the quality of services and programs with a focus on the satisfaction of the persons served. Integra has been recognized for the ability to translate vision into action and deliver on the promises we make to the people we serve. CARF has accredited Integra for its Community Housing, Community Integration, and Respite Services. Integra has been CARF accredited since 2006 and will be surveyed again in 2016.
